Drone Real Estate Videos
The advent of drones turned real estate photography and videography inside out, and upside down - making the old 'pole cam' obsolete overnight and tearing a big chunk out of professional aerial photography. Today, a camera platfom the size of a child's toy, controlled by a Smart Phone, in the hand's of a newbie pilot, can take off and land by itself, pull off super-smooth aerials and dodge obstacles.
For a while, it seemed the space would be regulated but CASA's move to sanction any drone under 2kg for commercial flight was interpreted by most as a free-for-all, and it's still the 'wild west' out there with professionally licensed commercial Pilots flying under CASA Operation Manuals mixing it with devil-may-care independents.
There are strict rules around the operation of UAVs. No flying after dark, no flying within 30m of people or cars, no flying in restricted air space. If you're an Agent and want to know if you can legally have a listing filmed, download the App (Can I Fly There)
platinumHD offers two different real estate drone services to our valued customers.
Our CREWs are licensed and all carry drones under 2kg. We see the drone as just another lens in our camera kit and will shoot complimenary aerial footage and photography, providing we can fly there, legally and safely.
